Hi. I'm the new rookie here, (still looking for my locker). I've gotten some good information from this site so I decided to join. So, with that said, thanks to all the administrators and lay-posters for the questions and the answers. They help alot. :bigthumbsup Okay, on to my issue. Got the check engine light. Came back with the infamous P0340 code. Changed both of the camshaft position sensors. Of course we all know by now the check engine light came back on a couple of days later. This was a few weeks ago. Fast forward to Friday 6-25-10. I'm about 2 miles from my house when the radio shuts off, and a few of the dash lights come on. Let's all say it together class: "The Alternator died." I kind of half expected it, again thanks to everything I've read here. So I make it home, order my new alternator from PA Performance (thanks for the recommendation stlwagon :worship), and I installed it today (6-30-10). So far so good. Now however, I'm having a problem with the window "bounce back" function. It won't stay up. This first happened the day the alternator died. I figured it was one of the symptoms of the drop in electrical power. I've read through the manual and I've taken all of the recalibration steps, and there doesn't seem to be any obstructions in the window seating track at the top. So before going to the dealership I wanted to check here and see if anyone had any ideas or has experienced/fixed this problem. Any help/recommendations would be much appreciated. :)

P.S. Does this place even have a locker room? This stuff is getting heavy. :shigrin

Hold window switch up for 3 seconds after window is all the way up, then hold window switch down for 3 seconds after it is all the way down. This is what I had to do whenever it rained hard until I stopped the water from dripping into my SJB (Smart Junction Block) behind the passenger side kick panel.

Try this.

DE-INITIALIZATION PROCEDURE
De-initialization (un-learning) of the smart window motor clears the memory of the module and shuts off the One-Touch UP, Bounce Back and Short Drop functions.
The smart window motors can be de-initialized in two (2) different ways:
Disconnect the battery cable from the battery WHILE THE WINDOW IS MOVING.
Remove the window motor fuse from the Power Distribution Box WHILE THE WINDOW IS MOVING.
After performing one of the above procedures, the smart motor must be re-initialized, see Initialization Procedure.

INITIALIZATION PROCEDURE
INITIALIZATION MUST BE PERFORMED WITH THE DOOR CLOSED! (For convertibles, top and the quarter glass must be in the up / closed position.)
From the window switch, perform the following steps without stopping:
Operate the window UP and stall for 2 seconds. (Hold The Switch)
Operate the window DOWN and stall for 2 seconds. (Hold The Switch)
The smart window motor will be initialized and one-touch-UP and Short Drop will be operational.
Cycle the window glass an additional five (5) times to set the window
"Soft Stop" for the down position.

You guys are awesome! I was going to try the 3 second thing, but the window wouldn't stay up long enough. I did the De-Initialization/Re-Initialization and now the window works perfectly. Thanks again stlwagon. Thanks to you too KRE2PASS & hotshot. Well so far I've only been to work and back on that new alternator. I'm going out of town for the holiday weekend, so that should give it a real road test. Here's hoping I'm not back on here again next week, for an alternator anyway. :winks Thanks again guys!

Glad it worked... Just remember that anytime you lose battery power you will likely have to reaccomplish the procedure.

First, let me say thanks to all those who work on providing this forum. I'm on my 2nd Mustang GT during the past 14 years.

I had a problem with my window, and googled "2006 mustang gt drivers window" ... this forum was the first site that popped up. Tried the fix in the above post, and everything works great once again.

Thanks again to this forum !

Thanks a lot, I disconnected the battery while moving the window to reset. I recalibrated and it's working :)
